Fields in Trust is the only UK wide charity dedicated to protecting and improving outdoor space for sport, play and recreation.
Formed in 1925 as the National Playing Fields Association we aim to ensure that everyone - young or old, able or disabled and whether they live in an urban or rural area – has access to free, local facilities for healthy outdoor activities.
Outdoor spaces have a vital role to play in creating healthy communities helping not only to increase physical activity but also to foster social cohesion and improve the local environment.
Our work is as vital and relevant now as it was back in 1925 with outdoor spaces continuing to come under threat from development every single week. Currently we protect 1,881 sites all across the country totalling 15,646 acres ensuring that future generations will have access to outdoor space for sport, play and recreation.
To help us continue to protect outdoor recreational spaces in the UK and lobby for them - join Fields in Trust.
